Who was it that said..Those willing to sacrifice a little Liberty to gain a little security, will gain neither and lose both.

I heard it was a misquote..



“Those who would give up Essential Liberty, to purchase a little Temporary safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety" is, I believe, the correct quote but it is often quoted as, "Who give up liberty for safety, deserve neither"

This expression seems to have mutated over time. Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations (1989) cites it as:

Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
